Support » Themes and Templates » IE7 really shocked me! (sidebar again)

  • Hi all! 🙂

    I know, there are many topics about IE and sidebar-problems. But I couldn’t find the problems I have right now, so I hope you don’t mind another topic about this subject. 😉
    I am, to put it friendly, not the greatest IE-fan. 😉 I personally use Firefox, IMHO much better. But well, I have to see how my site looks in IE once in a while. And since there’s a new version, I decided to download it…
    So I opened my site…

    And “Oh my goodness!!!!” 🙁 :S

    The sidebars are totally screwed up! On the left, lost of links don’t work anymore. On the right, there’s just a whole section missing! You can see it at http://www.natuurleuk.nl

    Now, I’m totally clueless how to solve this. You see, my site is about nature, for people who love hiking and animals and stuff… and 50% of my visitors uses IE. So it’s important I do solve it.
    So, my question to you experts out there: pleeeease help me! What should I do / change / fix?

    The theme I’m using is “cordoba green park”, I have lotsa widgets, and well, spent hours and hours tweaking my website, not understanding what stylesheets really do and how to read php. 😉

    Thanks so much for reading this and helping out a newbie!

    Greetz, Constance

  • Uh… yeah… I don’t understand what that means I’m afraid. :S

    I added some kind of doctype-thingie in the index.html now… don’t have a clue what it does… but the problem isn’t with index.html… it’s my blog that won’t show the sidebars in IE7 in a normal way like in Firefox! So I guess it must be the stylesheet / a widget… but I really don’t know how to solve it! So suggestions would be very welcome! 😉 Many thanks in advance! 🙂

    erm. this is surprising.. am not able to see ur site. as in, even outside the frames, i cant see the blog.

    is the site down?

    Looks like a problem with the display of the frames and the frameset. I can go directly to http://www.natuurleuk.nl/wordpress/ and see the site both in IE6 and FF2 just fine. Might be an issue with IE hacks that will still work in IE7 but aren’t needed – thus you have to make up your mind whether to use the hacks in the stylesheet for IE6 to look right – or remove for IE7 to look right.

    Thanks for the comments!

    @ ektz: indeed, my site (well, the frontpage) was down, I did something stupid. 😉 It’s now up again though! 🙂

    @ herschwolf: I’m sorry for my newbie-question, but uhm… what are hacks in a stylesheet exactly? *blush*

    Nice weekend to all of you, Constance.

    *kick* 😛
    Anyone? I know it’s a newbie question… but what is a “hack” in a stylesheet?
